Karen grew up in southern California and moved to Arizona in 1995.  She graduated from Phoenix College and has been a Dental Hygienist since 2000. She also has done extensive research in health and nutrition. 

In her spare time, Karen volunteers with a local nonprofit, mentoring foster children.  She is also in the midst of working with her husband to create a documentary film addressing the foster care system in Arizona.



Alisha was born and raised in Thatcher, Arizona and moved to Mesa in 2005.  She worked as a dental assistant for nine years before graduating from MCC's dental hygiene program. 

One of Alisha’s favorite things about dental hygiene is building lasting, trusting, relationships with HER patients.  Educating patients about the link between oral and systemic health is important in my patient care as a dental hygienist.

“Working for Dr. Cory and Dr. Kyle has been a great experience, and I'm happy to be in an office where optimal patient care is  a priority.”

In her spare time, Alisha enjoys spending time with her three (soon to be four) children and husband.  One of their favorite past-times is going for buggy rides out in the desert.  Being outdoors and spending time together as a family is what she enjoys most!



Joelle is an Arizona native. She worked with Dr. David Rush for about 2 years right out of high school as a Dental Assistant and later graduated from Mesa Community College with a degree in Dental Hygiene.

She loves the outdoors and spending time with her family on the weekends. She plans to serve on dental mission trips to help those in need in the future both locally and in different counties across the globe.
